Type 56c's are still in Active PLA service :P
The type 56-2 can probably pass as a Type 81 assault rifle they still haven't been fully purged out of the PLA armoury. It is also the closest thing to a Type 03 until the Realsword does something about it. The realsword SVD is actually a chinese Type 79/85. For the sake of realism why shorten a SVD that comes from a former Norinco/ state owned factory.
